Former Youth Congress president,Ludhiana (Urban),Dimple Rana is all set to join the SAD this week,according to sources.
Sources said Rana would join at a special function in which Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal would be present.
Rana had contested as a councillor from the Congress but lost. He had lost the election to the Youth Congress as well. In the Assembly elections,he wanted to contest from Ludhiana North but was denied the ticket. Since then he has been having a grudge against the party.
Though Rana was not available for comment,District Congress Committee president Pawan Dewan said members keep on coming and going in a party,but we will never want our family to be reduced.
However,PPCC secretary Parminder Mehta said,He is a failure at the political as well as the social front. He could not even win councillors election and was dogged by a controversy in his personal life as well. The party will not be affected if he switches loyalty,but SAD will have to think as what type of persons they want to enroll in their party.”
Even in the recent past,a few Congress leaders,including Ashok Makkar,had joined the SAD when Deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal had come to Ludhiana.
